The Trons

The Trons, an all-robot band from New Zealand, make their video debut.

The short list of awesome robot bands has a new addition called The Trons. Straight outta' New Zealand, this four piece, all-robot band fits somewhere between the garage rock of the Zombies and the driving guitar and synth rhythm of early instrumental Stereolab.

Ham, Wiggy, Swamp, and Fifi handle The Tron's rhythm guitar, lead guitar, drums, and keyboard, respectively. Lucky attendants of the Ignition Fringe Festival in Hamilton Central, New Zealand will be able to check out the rest of The Trons' robotic repertoire on June 21. The rest of us will have to content ourselves with domestic robot rock.
